Both of our names are on the land contract. Very soon after our divorce, he skipped town, letting me and my son stay on the property. I paid house payments, insurance, and taxes. But the deed is still in the previous owner's name. Now almost 30 years later he's back to "take care of... Read more »
At a minimum he has to file an eviction action. Based upon the length of time, I would contact your divorce attorney. As the house was awarded to him as part of a property division or equitable division of debt, he should have been responsible for the mortgage. I am certain that he will argue...Read more »
I am also not adding his name to the loan but the title agency says he had to be at closing to sign a “marital interest” sheet or we can’t continue. Why if it is in my name, and he has nothing to do with it? How do I get around this?

A septic and well inspection was completed and it failed the inspection for the septic. So roughly the house needs a new septic system for 10k. Now, the... Read more »
You need to have your purchase agreement reviewed by an attorney. After the inspection you made a request to have the septic system repaired. The Seller countered by, essentially agreeing to pay up to $6,500 for the septic repairs. You need to accept or reject their counter-offer. The purchase...Read more »
I have a buyer. I really need the money for medical bills. The co owner wants to keep it, and wants me to remain co owner. I feel stuck. How do I sell my share of the property. It is not divided by surveys, one 36 acre piece of woods.
The Governor requested that there be a moratorium on such filings. In other words, the Governor asked Landlords not to file evictions. The Ohio Supreme Court also tolled all filing deadlines during the emergency lock down. However, neither of these two actions prohibit evictions...Read more »

Your friend seems to be treating the installation of lighting as an arm's length contract for services.

A lawyer with a condo association is telling us that the month-to-month lease we have with a tenant cancels and restarts every month and therefore we need to go before the board every month to get this "new" lease approved. Is he a$$ backwards like he seems?
My understanding of a month to month lease is that it automatically renews as between the Landlord and the tenant. It does not cancel and restart. It sounds as though the Condo Association is simply trying to make it difficult for you to rent the condo.
The condo association operates the same as any other corporation. There should be bylaws and minutes setting forth what can be done and how it is to be done. There may also be an issue with self dealing
Nothing in writing on the 2-4 weeks out. Can I legally cancel our contract and ask for my money back. He hasnt been returning my calls and has also given me several start dates the didn't happen. Or does this contract go on forever?
If the contract did not provide for a start or completion date, then you may have to determine whether the delay has been reasonable. Were there delays caused by weather? The period of time involved is approaching unreasonable. In addition, depending upon the circumstances, the roofer may have...Read more »
